What's in the space?

(Pete Hellyer) #1

The space is split into three main sections. With a plethora of tools and machines in each, it can be easy to lose track of what is where. This is a handy dandy guide to the lay of the makerspace land. Links are also contained to the appropriate page in the Tools category.

This topic is also a wiki, so feel free to make changes

Clean Room

This Room is the main clean-working area in the space (xx m^2). We have space set-up for doing Electronics work and Textiles. It's our largest, cleanest and oldest space. Usually, this is where we would hold workshops or other events. Our Thursday Electronics group meets in here!

This room is also home to the Social Seating Area, Washroom and Kitchen.

Stuff in this room:

Also (commonly ?) known as: Phase 1, The Gate Room, The Eplisorium

Messy Workshop

This Room (xx m^2) is the space for all our messy crafts that need to be kept away from dust. Here’s a good place to do a bit of painting, varnishing or general clean assembly of things.

Stuff in this room:

Also (commonly ?) known as: Phase 2, Wet Room, The Argumentorium

Dusty Workshop

Want to rip into some wood? Drill some stuff, make a racket and / or dust? Here's your space (xx m^2). We've decked this room out to support crafts that make a mess. A lot of the kit in here is designed for the wood-working amongst us and is also a bit dangerous, so you'll need to be inducted by one of the workshop tech's before you can use many of these tools.

Stuff in this room:

Also (commonly ?) known as: Phase 2, Wood Workshop.

The Snug

Notice how it's nice and tidy in the rest of the space? This room is our shameful secret. Nothing of interest lies herein if we're doing our jobs correctly. In the future, This will be something exciting, just not yet.

Stuff in this room
